The age of cryptocurrencies brought to light some of the most bright minded individuals-usually traders, programmers, hedge fund managers, and designers worth following.
While most of us rush to follow the likes of Satoshi Nakamoto (whoever that is), Don and Lex Tapscott, Andreas Antonopoulos, Charlee Lee and other key members, there are small-time but effective crypto enthusiasts that could be worth following.
One of the benefits of following under the radar cryptocurrency enthusiasts is a faster response to queries. These individuals have fewer followers and can get back to you within a day or less.
If they do charge for their services, the rates cannot be as stiff as what you would get from veterans. This list only considers experts that have between 1000 and 10,000 Twitter followers- the cryosphere is just getting to know them.
